Stash Tea - Organic Agave Nectar Sticks - 20 Sticks
Stash Tea Organic Agave Nectar Sticks contain natural sweetener made from the juice of the Agave plant. It has a pleasant flavor and is sweeter than sugar with a consistency similar to honey. With an approximate 72% fruit sugar content, Agave absorbs more slowly into the body decreasing the highs and lows associated with sugar. Its low glycemic index may be suitable for diabetics. Agave is also a vegan friendly honey substitute. Simply pop open the ends to stir natural goodness into your tea.
Stash Teas' Green Initiatives
Since their start in 1972, Stash Tea has sought to balance social and environmental responsibility with economic reality. This begins with careful selection of the tea gardens from which they purchase their teas. Through the years, we have chosen to do business with tea gardens of the highest quality and that treat their workers honestly and fairly. Stash Tea also sells premium organic teas that meet their exacting standards. All of these teas are 100 percent natural and USDA and QAI certified organic.
At Stash Tea, they are committed to renewable energy and purchase green power through their local electric utility, Portland General Electric. A 2005 lighting upgrade project in their plant replaced metal halide high-bay fixtures with new energy-wise fluorescent light fixtures and other energy-efficient lights—saving nearly 50,000 kwh annually and improving the quality of lighting for employees.
Stash Tea also encourages the use of public transportation by paying for half the cost of monthly bus passes for their employees.
Stash Tea reuses and recycles packaging materials, office supplies, printer cartridges, scrap paper and newspaper. In fact, they began using recycled paper for packing material in their shipping department more than 12 years ago when bubble wrap and foam peanuts were still the industry standard. Stash Tea also uses recycled paper and paper from sustainably managed forests for their packaging and other printing projects.
Although a small company, Stash Tea is aware of their responsibility to the environment, both locally and globally, and strives to be a green, responsible, and socially conscious organization.
